This file contains the complete works of the book "RCN Beach Commando W", created by combining the two separate versions created during the uploading of Part 1 and Part 2 onto the Archive.org web site. The initial file was of a size that required separation of the book into the two components. Part 1 "The Chronicles of W's Establishment, Training and Operations”, is the primary story of the Royal Canadian Navy's involvement with the Allies Combined Operations during the Second World War (WWII). The RCN Beach Commando W was the only Canadian unit in the combined operations. Part 2 "The Portholes" consists entirely of off-the-record anecdotal reports from those involved in the RCN Beach Commando W unit. The inspiration for this project came from having the opportunity to get to know Able Seaman Arthur Henry Petty (V.54229)who served with RCN W2 at this time. From there we contacted the estate of the author (Eric Gault Finley) and obtained permission to digitally reproduce the book. Please see the following "rights" for the agreement between the digitizer and the estate.
